music really does calm the savage beast

I downloaded a trial version of OpenCanvas and I like the program itself, I can see it has so much potential. I just generally fail at it. I tried drawing something simple...Kyle (cartoon!). His nose sucked, his eyes sucked, his mouth sucked, there was general suckage going on. I tried doing the same thing on pen and paper and it was much better, so I know I can draw Kyle in that style (heh). I did some tricks to help with drawing with a mouse, slowing down the scroll for example. I just utterly fail at drawing with a mouse. His ushanka was alright, which is downright bizarre because his hat is hard for me to draw properly!
I want to learn how to use this program but first I need to figure out how to freaking draw with the mouse! For now I suppose I'll continue drawing on paper and scanning then coloring in with the program. Poor Kyle, I butchered him.

I've never heard of the program...but it sucks it's not working so well for you...:(
I think it's just because drawing with a mouse is hard anyway, that's why I want a tablet it's generally easier...
I hope it gets better though! :)

It's a great program, I just suck ;)
Yeah, I'm thinking of getting a tablet. Maybe ask for one for my birthday...

No you don't...I DO! :)
That would be cool, they aren't too much...you can also get a tablet that attaches to your actual computer by USB, they are so much cheaper. I want an actual Tablet computer, I've always wanted one...;)
